From the outside you honestly don't know what you are going to get, but... Super inexpensive, fresh paint, new linens, nice carpet, decent furniture, dog friendly, breakfast included, awesome location, really nice owners, clean and the list goes on! Seriously the best deal for someone on a serious budget! Couldn't be happier!

This would be a perfectly good motel, clean, good location & good value if they did not insist on applying an automatic charge for a safe in the room, whether you actually use it or not. Its only a dollar fifty, per night, but it its the principle.

We came during the Valentines/President Day weekend. It was the only hotel available that was under $200/night. We totally understand that peak time so the cost was reasonable. Staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The property is on the older side so don't expect any frills. I'm not sure about the rest of the rooms but we only had a... More

This is your basic, no frills hotel. The rooms have seen better days but they were clean and everything worked. Staff was helpful and internet was fast. Good location, too. Can't imagine a better deal for the price.

Very nice for how inexpensive the room rate was. Room is older but clean. A few blocks from Heavenly Ski Resort and a minute drive to the Casinos. Breakfast was toast and muffins, but Heidi's right next to the motel has an excellent breakfast.

This HoJo has amazing beds and fast internet! Really, that's all you need while in Tahoe during the winter. Everything else was just good. There needs to be some upgrades with the furniture, bathroom and TV. None of that really matters to a skier like me. It was perfect and inexpensive.
